Are you looking for a specific color. For example black, chrome, aluminum, polished aluminum...
Imo I think a 5 spoke polished aluminum wheel would really compliment the car.

That is something I'm leaning toward. I'm not a huge fan of black. I think it would be a little much. I have also been looking at the gunmetal with the polished accents. But yes planning on going 5 spoke.

Argent silver might be cool.

Gunmetal would look good. Have you looked at the gunmetal wheels at americanmuscle? I've seen them on a mustang not too long ago and they looked pretty sick. I think the wheels are called razors?? But I could be completely wrong lol

Re: New wheels

I have those same boring stock GT wheels. I still can't believe the wheels were considered an 'upgrade' at the time. I'm using them year round but wanted something more appealing when winter isn't upon us and didn't want to spend a fortune.

I ended up finding a set of 18" 2010 5-spoke GT wheels with Pirellis that came off a brand new 'tang and never used but already mounted and balanced. Less than $750 shipped! Not bad for a completely extra set. They seem to sell many of the same set, see below. You gain an inch in wheel and decrease tire wall.
